Dragonfly Garden – You Mean So Much

Welcome back!  There are a lot of theme and color challenges this coming week and very few sketches.  Isn’t that the way it goes…feast or famine.  What I always find very interesting is that with so many choices out there, the collective universe always seems to be on the same wave length…so, I am goingContinue reading “Dragonfly Garden – You Mean So Much”

Citrus Bubble Over – Your Kindness is Refreshing!

The Happy Little Stamper’s group puts out five different challenges each month.  The July CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge was “Citrus and Zing”.  I have to tell you I struggled with this theme.  Every Lemon type stamp set that I recalled I might still have, I could not find.  Then yesterday I had an idea. Continue reading “Citrus Bubble Over – Your Kindness is Refreshing!”
